Wilson has missed the past three games with a concussion.

Ovechkin scores once in each period, and Washington beats Detroit, 6-2.

Oshie is slated to be on the first line with center Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin, and he's also set to be back on the top power-play unit after missing the past 11 games with a concussion.

Capitals Coach Todd Reirden said there is a “possibility” Oshie plays against Detroit, but the forward will be reevaluated after participating in Monday's practice.

Washington's fourth line has chipped in five goals in the past four games.

Alex Ovechkin feeds Travis Boyd for the winger’s first career goal to cap a 4-0 win over Washington’s division rival.

Washington also could be down another forward due to illness as it faces Metro division rival Columbus.

Forward is usually the last to leave the ice at practice, and the Capitals are counting on him more than ever.

Vegas Golden Knights spokesman Eric Tosi said in an email the photos “were not distributed and they have been destroyed.”

Slumping forward finds his offense at a most opportune time to lift Washington to a rare win in Arizona, 4-2.

Wilson is considered "day to day," and winger Andre Burakovsky will take his place on Washington's top line.

NHL teams are 1-8-2 in games played after visiting the Golden Knights this season.

The hit on Wilson by Vegas's Ryan Reaves resulted in a five-minute major penalty and Reaves's ejection. "Reaves targeted him the entire game. You could hear it on every faceoff," said the Capitals' Coach.

Wilson leaves the game with a suspected concussion after Ryan Reaves launches into him late in the second period of a 5-3 loss to Vegas.

“The first thing I was looking at was if they changed the floors or the ceiling in here,” Andre Burakovsky said.

If the Great Eight tops the 50-goal mark in 2018-19 he becomes only the fourth player in NHL history to have at least two such campaigns after the age of 30. While Gretzky's goal scoring started to slow in his 30s, Ovechkin is still going strong.
